When police respond to a car accident, they may ask a driver specifics about the event, and criminal charges may be pending as a result of the discoveries they make. Recently, police came across a man whose truck had hit a pole. After investigating the scene and talking with the Tennessee man, they felt DUI charges were warranted, along with other charges.
The police responded at around 8 p.m. and asked the man what happened. They report that he initially said he wrecked because of swerving to avoid hitting an animal. The truck apparently went through a ditch before hitting the pole. They administered unspecified field sobriety tests, some of which they contend he failed. Other parts of the test were not possible due to the man's injuries.
